Flavor of the Week-Today I Ate a Rainbow!

SO COOL!! This is a fabulous resource for any parent (and teacher)!!  The package was shipped so quickly and came in an exciting package.  I received The Rainbow Kit which includes: 1 fridge chart, fabulous magnets for each food color (enough for up to 4 kids), super cute achievement magnets, shopping list pad, Rainbow Bunch children’s book, and magnets to secure it all to the fridge! Let me start with the chart, the fabulous chart.  The chart has amazing, bright pictures that immediately caught all four eyes of the munchkins! The fruits and vegetables are cute little characters with big smiles that the youngest weaner thought was sooo funny! The night we got The Rainbow Kit my oldest weaner realized that we hadn’t eaten any ‘yellow’ that day so we went off to the store looking for a yellow.  Now everyday after we eat supper the oldest weaner puts their magnets on the chart and lets me know if we were missing a color.  She has had some issues with green but now she will eat anything just to achieve eating the entire rainbow, I LOVE IT! I am pretty sure The Rainbow Bunch children’s book was written for my youngest weaner.  The rhymes read like a fun song and she ‘sings’ along as I read the pages.  It has been our bedtime (and wake time) book for over two weeks now and she puts it in her bag to bring wherever we go.  While she loves the rhymes and pictures I love the content.  My favorite thing about the book is that it is educational.  It teaches kids the problems of not eating healthy foods and it doesn’t focus on weight! When I was making my own baby food I had a checklist on my fridge so that I could monitor the ‘colours’ the weaners ate.  I think this would be a fabulous addition for mom’s that can just put it up high enough that little ones won’t try to eat them to monitor their kid’s diets.
